    now the ends begin ^ | april 29.206 | George Gilder
    At one point before Trump arrived, about two dozen protesters tried to rush barriers near the hotel. Police officers then rushed to the building's doors, successfully blocking the protesters from getting in. Some of the doors' handles were handcuffed from the inside so they couldn't be forced open. HUNDREDS OF PAID FOR DEMONSTRATORS DESCENDED ON THE CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN CONVENTION FRIDAY TO PROTEST DONALD TRUMP AHEAD OF HIS SPEECH, COURTESY OF GEORGE SOROS AND COMPANY. As Donald Trump hold rallies in California, ‘spontaneous protests‘ are cropping up to greet him. Only thing is, the protesters are collecting a paycheck for their...

    Many of the exact same groups that participated in Occupy Wall Street and helped organize protest rallies in Ferguson and Baltimore are now promising to bring us “the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation”. I recently wrote about the trouble that radical leftists have caused by attempting to disrupt Trump campaign events, but now there is a very organized effort to turn this into a national movement. On March 19th, thousands of angry protesters will descend on Trump Tower in New York City to denounce Donald Trump’s “fascist policies”, and on April 2nd dozens of leftist organizations will join...

    Asked by talk-radio host Michael Savage if it’s at all possible that someone from his campaign staff was responsible for the National Enquirer story claiming Ted Cruz had five mistresses, GOP presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump insisted his camp is clean. Donald Trump (Courtesy Michael Vadon) “No, it’s not possible,” Trump said. “In fact, two articles were written today, or yesterday, by not-lovers of Trump, the Daily Beast – whatever that may be – and another one, a respected journalist, that said Marco Rubio has been peddling this story for a long time.” Trump, a regular guest on “The Savage...

Well, perhaps not end those things so much as signal to others that you stand against those things because you're a morally superior being? Then MoveOn.org, the George Soros-backed progressive group that worked so hard to get Barack Obama elected twice, has just the thing for you: a plain white t-shirt emblazoned with the bold, smug declaration, "I Stand With My Muslim Neighbors."

    There is a report on Brietbart here that a radial group calling itself Democracy Spring is planning on organizing "the largest civil disobedience action of the century" in hopes creating national chaos. Obviously, they are modeling their effort after 2011's Arab Spring (the fact they don't realize what an unmitigated disaster the Arab Spring was should clue you in to their cluelessness). Hence their nom de guerre: Democracy Spring. I believe another name is more appropriate: Crybully Spring Because, that is exactly they are--crybullies. They are failing to get their way at the ballot box. Rather than respect the results...

    On Friday, March 11, an event occurred in Chicago that reminded me of violent clashes between Nazis and Communists during the waning years of the Weimar Republic in Germany. GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump canceled a scheduled speech at an event to be held in the Windy City, where a sizable crowd of left-wing students and Black Lives Matter activists clashed with Trump’s supporters. Telecasts showed that in addition to screams of “Hitler!” and other face-to-face confrontations, punches were thrown and a few landed. Although Chicago police did their best to prevent bloodshed, the anti-Trumpeteers succeeded in preventing people from...

    Dear MoveOn member, Donald Trump's violent, bullying political rhetoric has escalated in the past few days. Over the weekend, he singled out MoveOn from the stage of his rallies twice, and it has resulted in some of the ugliest online attacks on MoveOn that we've ever seen: His supporters have flooded MoveOn's inboxes with hate mail. In the face of these attacks, we refuse to back down or remain silent. Fox News mentioned MoveOn more than 150 times over the weekend, egging on Trump supporters. MoveOn is not funded by mega-corporations like Fox. Instead, we rely on our millions of...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The police used pepper spray twice to disperse protesters outside Donald J. Trump’s rally here Saturday night, just 24 hours after confrontations between his supporters and demonstrators led to the cancellation of a Chicago event. Cellphone video posted on social media appeared to show as many as four cans of spray being used at one point as protesters confronted police officers on foot and on horseback. Andrea Tunks, 19, said she and several other protesters had locked arms and faced down two police horses and numerous officers in front of the theater where the rally took...

    A MoveOn.org petition demanding that MSNBC suspend "Hardball" host Chris Matthews has garnered just under 10,000 signatures, even as the network has refused to address what Huffington Post called a "clear conflict of interest." The petition began in response to outrage over Matthews' "constant shilling for Hillary Clinton." The number of petition signees has almost tripled in size since The Daily Caller reported that Hillary Clinton's biggest donors are bankrolling the congressional campaign of Matthews' wife, Kathleen. One woman who signed the petition said was "crying thinking 'my' media source is so biased." Another petitioner called Matthews' behavior an "egregious"...

    Another nod from the left MoveOn, the progressive activist group who once received money from George Soros, has decided to endorse Bernie Sanders for the presidency, giving him yet another accolade from the left wing of the Democratic Party. Unlike some other political groups, MoveOn’s endorsement is decided by a vote of its members, with a 2/3 majority needed for the official nod to be given. MoveOn endorsed Howard Dean in 2004 and Barack Obama in 2008.

    In an email sent to supporters of the progressive political group MoveOn.org, ice cream icons Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen asked recipients to join them in supporting the Iran deal to keep “America out of another war in the Middle East.” Lobbyists and billionaires plan to spend over $40 million to stop the diplomatic deal with Iran—the one the Obama Administration negotiated to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. That’s dangerous, because if too many Democrats listen to the flood of hawkish, misinformation-ridden TV ads—and if they vote with Republicans—they could override the president’s agreement in just about a month.

The issues go far beyond whether NIAC has been illegally operating without registering as a foreign agent, and have ensnared NIAC’s close ally, none other than J Street. First, NIAC is a Soros-backed group. Soros is of course the money behind MoveOn.org and got J Street up and running. He is also paying “the $90,000 annual salary of the NIAC staffer, Patrick Disney.” The Left’s moneyman is plainly in the mullah’s corner....

The report, conducted in early 2014, found that some employees do not retain emails because "they do not want to make the email available in searches or fear that this availability would inhibit debate about pending decisions," according to the report.

    The president's expansion of the U.S. military mission in Iraq is conjuring up two dirty little words for anti-war Democrats: Mission creep. Just two months ago, when Obama announced he was going to send up to 300 American troops to Iraq, he emphasized that they would only have an advisory, non-combat role. On Friday, however, U.S. fighters bombed terrorist targets in northern Iraq. Hours before, the president had announced he was authorizing such strikes as well as the airdropping of aid to Iraqi refugees stranded on a mountaintop. The White House has stressed that the two missions — the airstrikes...

    Media Matters employees are furious that their bosses are trying to keep them from unionizing. A union-organizing committee at the liberal group released a statement Monday slamming their employers for “the unexpected and unexplained path our leadership has taken in response to our efforts to unionize,” adding that “the actions of Media Matters executives have placed employees in the impossible position of continuing to produce content espousing pro-labor values for an employer who is challenging our right to unionize.”

    Louisiana and a national left-leaning political group may be headed to court over a Baton Rouge area billboard that criticizes Gov. Bobby Jindal. Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne sent a cease-and-desist order to MoveOn on Thursday, asking the advocacy organization to take down a billboard along Interstate 10 that parodies Louisiana’s “Pick your Passion” tourism slogan. The billboard, which mentions Jindal by name, is critical of the governor and legislators’ decision not to expand the state Medicaid program under federal health care reform. “LOU!SIANA Pick your passion! But hope you don’t love your health. Gov. Jindal’s denying Medicaid to 242,000 people,”...

It seems that http://www.moveon.org/moveonbulletin/bulletin19.html (MoveOn.org official bulletin by Noah Winer) turned out to be so embarrasing to MoveOn.org that MoveOn.org took it down.

    Leading left-wing advocacy group MoveOn.org announced a new effort on Thursday to oppose innovations that are propelling the country towards a new abundance of domestically produced energy. MoveOn bemoaned in an email to supporters the “troubling trend” of increased energy production, which is reducing the U.S. trade deficit, creating well-paying jobs, stabilizing global energy prices, and undermining the economic engine behind some of the world’s most repressive regimes. MoveOn announced the creation of a new effort called “#FrackingFighter,” which “seeks to slow down the fracking boom that is anticipated to occur across the United States in 2014 and beyond.” The...

    The liberal MoveOn.org is fundraising off the botched Obamacare roll out, calling on supporters to pitch in to help stave off Republican attacks on the floundering law. In an email to supporters Thursday evening, MoveOn.org explained that President Obama’s signature health care law “is now in real trouble” because of its roll out fumbles. “There’s no sugar-coating it: Obamacare is in serious political trouble,” the email reads. “And progressives need to step up and start fighting to save it right now.”

    Steve Robinson's disappointment about the federal government shutdown Wednesday while standing outside the Topeka office of U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins reflected a personal stake in gridlock strangling the nation's political epicenter in Washington, D.C. His wife is among about 800,000 federal workers furloughed in the wake of decisions in the House, Senate and White House to engage in a spirited tug-of-war over implementation of health insurance reform, the federal debt ceiling and other partisan financial conflicts. Robinson, of Lawrence, said too many in Congress, including Republicans such as Jenkins, had anchored themselves to uncompromising tea party ideals espoused by the...

    NEW YORK – Billionaire political activist George Soros is the primary patron of New York mayoral frontrunner Bill de Blasio, WND has learned. Last month, the New York news media reported Soros had endorsed De Blasio’s mayoral bid but failed to disclose the billionaire’s major financial donation to the candidate’s nonprofit as well as De Blasio’s cozy working relationship with Soros-funded activist groups. “I am endorsing Bill de Blasio for Mayor because I believe he has the talent, vision and ability to lead New York City,” Soros said in a statement released by the de Blasio campaign in early August....

    As the full Congress returns to Washington Monday, progressive groups are again challenging the White House’s case for a strike against Syria. MoveOn.org released an ad urging lawmakers to avoid authorizing the use of military force against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. A narrator says, “Don’t lead us down this road again,” while images and statistics from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are displayed in the background of the 30-second commercial, titled “Not Again.” The group created the ad after discovering that more than 70% of its 8 million members “firmly opposed” the strike, said Anna Galland, executive director...
